The first one was held in 2007, and the following year, we lost one of our members to breast cancer. Jenny was one of those people you meet once and instantly feel comfortable with- and welcomed by! She was a talented quilter and a giving friend.
So at the second Jamboree, held in Seattle, Washington, we collected quilts made by our members and donated them to a cancer treatment center there. We wanted the love we all felt for Jenny to be a comfort to people still battling the disease that took her from us. The project was such a success, we made it a part of the Jamboree again this year!
I am grateful for:
FABULOUS weather this weekend!
Unforgettable time with some really amazing women who have made a big difference in my life.
I missed that toad when I mowed around the front flower bed.
Thirty years with a good man.
Catching up on my sleep last night.
